Dan Newsome on Swing in the 1990s and Early 2000s


Whether you danced in the 1990s and early 2000s or just started yesterday, Daniel Newsome's personal take on those eras of lindy hop history is a great read. Dan covers some of the same territory as the Billboard magazine piece from a few months ago, but with more of his own experiences and opinions about those times.

He reviews several cultural trends in the lindy hop scene, some of whom are more regrettable than others, including: 

  • Neo-swing
  • Jump Blues
  • Trad Jazz
  • Groove
  • Hollywood Style
  • Electro-swing

 Now excuse me while I go burn my Capezio split-soles and purple zoot suit.
